Rosenstein Says He Wouldn't Fire Special Counsel Without Good Cause

18 June 2017, 01:50 | Floyd Cook

Ruddy was at the White House on Monday, but he did not meet with the president, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said.

"I think he's weighing that option", Ruddy said when asked by Woodruff whether the president was prepared to let the special counsel pursue the Russian Federation investigation. The dismissal would come, he said due to reports of conflicts of interest involving Mueller and White House officials.

"Chris Ruddy speaks for himself", Spicer said.

In 1973, amid the Watergate scandal, President Richard Nixon ordered Attorney General Elliot Richardson to fire special prosecutor Archibald Cox.

Both Fleischer and Gingrich had previously vouched for the character and integrity of Mueller, who was appointed Federal Bureau of Investigation director by Bush and whose term was extended an extra two years by Democratic President Barack Obama.

"Time to rethink", he tweeted on Monday, citing Mr Mueller's hiring decisions and Mr Comey's admission that he instructed a friend to share with reporters notes he had taken of his private conversations with Mr Trump in order to force the appointment of special counsel. Mueller is said to be looking at whether in his request Trump obstructed justice.

But people close to Mr. Trump say he is so volatile they can not be sure that he will not change his mind about Mr. Mueller if he finds out anything to lead him to believe the investigation has been compromised.


Technically, it's up to the attorney general to decide what to do with the special counsel.

The topic of both hearings is the Justice Department's budget.

A series of Washington power-players had pushed back Tuesday against the idea of firing Mueller.

Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, on Tuesday said: "As long as I'm in this position, he's not going to be fired without good cause".

Robert Mueller has come under attacks recently, with the Speaker of the House casting doubts over his credibility. Such a move would create a firestorm coming weeks after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. "And I'm not going to speculate on what he will or will not do", Sekulow said. Trump had also interviewed Mueller for the role of FBI director before Mueller was appointed special counsel in charge of the Russian Federation investigation.

Legal experts however say this would be incredibly hard, and if Trump succeeded it could trigger a crisis in American institutions. Jeanne Shaheen, a New Hampshire Democrat, whether he has seen good cause to fire Mueller.

Gingrich added that Trump is "actually pretty confident" in the investigation and "ultimately, he's still going to be president and this stuff is all going to go away". Still, Gingrich said any special counsel with an agenda can "all of the sudden find something procedural and technical to latch onto".
